The roadway was closed overnight while police investigate the collision.

It was reopened around 4:30 a.m. after the vehicle and the deceased were removed from the scene and taken to the Centre of Forensic Sciences to be examined.

The identity of the driver has not yet been determined.

An investigation into the cause of the collision continues.
